IP ratings is the rank of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Sony WF C700N's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Sony WF C700N have a weight of 9.2g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, Sony WF C700N are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
JBL Tour Pro 2 also is true wireless since it has no wires connecting the pair of earbuds together.
Sony WF C700N are resistant to sweat
JBL Tour Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc

Sony WF C700N have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Tour Pro 2 and Sony WF C700N have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Sony WF C700N have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
JBL Tour Pro 2 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes both earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour commutes. The Sony WF C700N and JBL Tour Pro 2 operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that suits your commute or that suites your chill time.
Sony WF C700N sit well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and also prevents the device sound from leaking out at the same.

Sony WF C700N have a unit size of 5mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size determines the sound made by the device.
JBL Tour Pro 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Sony WF C700N by 5mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Sony WF C700N's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
JBL Tour Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Sony WF C700N's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tour Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal treble
The Sony WF C700N's battery life is 10 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JBL Tour Pro 2's battery life is equal to that of the Sony WF C700N . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the Sony WF C700N's case has a full charge of 10 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.

Sony WF C700N support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Sony WF C700N will work well with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The JBL Tour Pro 2 support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
